My Immense and Daunting Challenge

Hi all. As most of you know, i play acoustic guitar alongside my lovely flutist Wife Sarah in church…But the time has come for me to meet my Nemesis! 

My guitar teacher “Harry(best guitarist ever)” has just started me learning the song i’ve been building up to over the last few years. It’s called “Clap” by Steve Howe(see video below). This is a huge challenge for anyone…But as you know i’m registered blind and can’t see my fingers or the frets etc so itreally is “My Immense and Daunting Challenge”.

I would like to write a follow up post around 2025 and i hope to be able to play at least a few bars of it, lol. 😀 

Just wanted to announce this milestone for me…For you who play instruments…What are some of the songs/music that have been your Nemesis? And is there any songs/music you’d still like to be able to play? Also for anyone out there…Do you have a challenge similar to this in any other areas of life? I’d love to hear from you! 😀 

Daily Prompt: The Name’s The Thing

Today’s Daily Prompt: The Name’s The Thing

“Have you ever named an inanimate object? (Your car? Your laptop? The volleyball that kept you company while you were stranded in the ocean?) Share the story of at least one object with which you’re on a first-name basis.”

I don’t normally have enough to say to participate in the daily prompts, but this one got my attention. I quickly asked Sarah the question, and she doesn’t name objects, and i could only think of 2 objects that has a name:

1, Big Bertha!

This is what i call my Nikkor 80-400mm zoom lens, especially when i have to carry it around and wish i just had my iPhone!! 🙂 I can’t ever remember calling it anything else!

2, Toni

This is what i’ve always called my 1995 Taylor GAWS (Grand Auditorium Walnut Spruce)acoustic guitar, because the tone this thing produces is just fantastic! I remember 6 years ago when my guitar teacher and i went to buy my first pro spec acoustic guitar. As soon as i played & heard it among all of the others, it was mine! 🙂
